Hurricane Matthew Postpones Comeback Trail 5K in Fla.

Due to Hurricane Matthew, the National Stroke Association is postponing its inaugural Comeback Trail 5K run/walk set for Saturday, Oct. 8 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

“Out of concern for the safety of participants, staff, volunteers and sponsors, we regret that we need to postpone the event,” said Robyn Moore, CEO of the National Stroke Association. “We were encouraged by the support we have received for our inaugural 5K run/walk in Florida and regret that the weather forecast is not in our favor.”

Participants and stroke community supporters will be notified of the new date and location as soon as it is available.

“We look forward to having everyone rally with us on a clearer day in Florida,” said Moore. “Our thoughts are with everyone within the path of Hurricane Matthew.”

The Comeback Trail 5K series raises funds for the National Stroke Association which is the only organization focusing 100 percent of its resources and attention on stroke.
